Course Description:

This 90 minute online training will cover how dietary supplement companies should label their products for the US market in accordance with FDA requirements. It will also help in understanding the considerations to avoid claims and building regulatory compliance into company programs for development and launch of properly labeled dietary supplements.

Course Objective:

Dietary Supplements are one of the fastest growing food product categories in the United States, especially with a growing number of consumers taking an active role in the maintenance and promotion of health. While the product category was created and defined by Congress, the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has the authority to oversee claims and labeling of dietary supplements. The expansion of product offerings in this category has been met by an increase in FDA monitoring and enforcement. It is therefore important for dietary supplement companies to ensure their product labels and accompanying claims are fully compliant with applicable statutes and regulations.
